I fit a mini-podcast retreat in there! We weren’t sure if it was going to happen (TS/Hurricane Nicole) but Laura made it down and we got to spend ~48 hours in the Keys recording episodes, brainstorming guests and topics, and planning out our Patreon curriculum for all of 2023.
It was a working trip, but a fun one! My favorite part was lying in a hammock on the beach! Love that we have kept BOBW going strong for >5 years now and have lots of interesting guests and topics planned for the coming months.

Bday party with G
Plan for week – I’m on call for the week starting tomorrow at 8 am!
Love this, Sarah! Question—would you recommend the keys for a mid- to late- November long weekend getaway? My husband and I celebrate our 10th anniversary next November and it’s on the list for getaway possibilities as we could leave the kids with their grandparents in Boca. Thoughts? Or other places you would recommend within an easy flight of south Florida? I originally had hoped to get to Europe but my husband isn’t sure he is comfortable being that far away…
Thanks!! Love that you and Laura fit in a nice 2 day working retreat.
Ooh I would probably pick Vero or Islamorada! Both not too far from FLL (which is closest to Boca), both with great places to stay and lovely couples destinations.
OR! Amelia Island, if you want truly luxurious could stay @ the Ritz up there. You could drive together or take a short flight to Jacksonville.
Boca is in between FLL and PBI airports. If you can get reasonable airfare to PBI (West Palm Beach), you could fly into that airport, have the grandparents meet you at the airport to get the kids, and then head north to Vero Beach from there.
Thank you both! Yes we fly in and out all the time, but typically all stay together with my husband’s parents (which is lovely)—just this time want to tack on a couple’s trip as well! Thanks for the ideas! I like Islamorada or Amelia Island best! Thanks 🙂
Yay for retreats; it always makes me so happy when you and Laura get to spend time together (as in, physically in the same space). Can’t wait to see all the topics/guests.
Also – you are killing it with the running!
Tangential comment, but I love your entire outfit in that photo!
